Comments & Testimonials

Universally, Dr. Trzeciak’s speech was well-received by our people leaders and our board members. The critical care unit medical staff who had an opportunity to have lunch with him really enjoyed his insights, and I think he enjoyed learning about our neonatal intensive care unit. His research aligns and supports (with evidence) the People First culture we are implementing at Children’s.
